I do not understand why we have to be so different?
All European goverments advice against travel to Egypt( including Red See Resorts) our goverment do nothing.
That does not help anyone who was unfortunate to book holiday in this country.
Tanks on streets of Hurghada, demonstration outside
goverment buildigs, no petrol, no credit cards use,
no cash in cash dispencers, not being able to be otside hotel from 1pm till 8 am is a part of normal holiday. Untill Mr. Cameron make his decision that how our holiday will be. Maybe he should join us?

Oh well, I think we are all mature enough to make our own decisions, without having to wait for Big Brother government to tell us what to do or not to do...

I can understand how Brian feels. We have a booked tour on the 25/02 until the tour company which is based in UK cancels we cann't claim back on our travel insurance and they wont cancel until the government says not to go.

We are in the same position, but we are due to travel on 18th Feb, and our tour operator is currently thinking about departures on the 9th Feb. I really do not think it is fair to keep people hanging on like this and only letting them know on the last minute, but one thing is certain, if they do cancel and offer us an alternative we will not be accepting it on principle.
